Help Maria Cano Beat Breast Cancer
Maria Cano, let me tell you about Maria. For the past few years I've had an amazing opportunity to watch Maria grow. Let me explain: When she first came to work for me she didn't say a word, she just worked hard and diligently at her job while learning color. Our beautiful Maria has blossomed into a beautiful flower. I have never met such an amazing, kind, beautiful (inside and out) person, a single mother raising a well mannered, bright and considerate 8 year old son.
Maria, in order to support herself and her son, works at the salon and then tends bar 3 nights a week. She shared with me that on Tuesdays she only gets 3 hours of sleep, yet, she does her job well and never complains.
Friday evening, June 10th Maria's doctor called her at work and informed her she's been diagnosed with breast cancer. That day I truly saw the fear and devastation in Maria as she held the phone shaking, crying and collapsing. As hard as this is, I can say that Maria is a positive young woman who will grow and become even stronger with the love and support from all of us.
Maria is scheduled to have surgery July 5th. In her honor I am starting a "gofundme" account to help her get through this horrific time. Please, if you are so inclined, copy and post this to any social media accounts; any and all help is very appreciated.
I want to thank each and every one of you for donating...I wanted to personally send each of you a message but it's not allowing me to do so =( You are all special and I am so grateful and so appreciative to have such strong support! Words honestly cannot describe how I feel right now. Except you guys keep me going, staying positive and motivating me to beat this! Every morning I am thankful that I get to wake up and have another chance! So much LOVE!
